Starting with the End in Mind

Presenter: Nancy Hunter Denney 

Do you know, really know where you want to be in five years, ten years or even next year?  Whether a career bound undergraduate, graduate student, new professional (six years working or less) this intensive session gets personal and asks the tough questions, offers perspective and will leave you more equipped to make decisions about your future.  Ms. Denney offers 35 years of experience ranging from being a student affairs professional to an entrepreneur.  Conversations and considerations around being your own boss, navigating the work place and being a Millennial or Gen Zer in an environment with three older generations who just don't "get you."  Casual attire (shorts and flip flops) is most appropriate on this "plus one" last day.

  • Map out a career strategy based upon your assessed competency strengths, life style preferences and other significant criteria
